PARADISE, Calif. - Jennifer Faria, the Summer Food Service Manager at Paradise Unified School District has been named a California Champion by the national anti-hunger campaign "No Kid Hungry." Through her work, she helped to ensure that students displaced by the Camp Fire could continue to get school meals.

The families of Paradise Unified School District were hit hard by last year’s devastating Camp Fire, making the summer meals program more important than ever.

The anti-hunger campaign, No Kid Hungry helped replace the mobile delivery vehicles that were lost in the Camp Fire. But staffing the program presented a challenge since many moved after the Camp Fire.

Jennifer Faria knew the summer meals program was the only way kids in Paradise would have access to food. According to the school district, she stepped up to stay and manage the summer meals program, despite facing her own personal losses in the fires.

No Kid Hungry focuses on school meals, including summer meals and Breakfast After the Bell, as a critical way to end childhood hunger.

In 2019 alone, the campaign has awarded more than $703,454 in grants to support nearly 100 California schools that will implement or expand their breakfast programs in the 2019-2020 school year.

No Kid Hungry California also helped secured $500,000 in state funding to support Breakfast After the Bell expansion grants, which will enable more schools across the state to start and expand their Breakfast After the Bell programs.

Attached are a few photos of the wrap for the truck. Read more information on the No Kid Hungry campaign, HERE.

Warm & breezy conditions are ahead for your final day of the summer season. Air quality is a bit more impacted this morning, but we could see some improvement in that today. We'll also be cooler and have a chance for showers returning to the coast later this week.
